Todd Hammond

An absolutely enjoyable album by some of today's best musicians
I originally bought this cd because of the perfect 10 rating and review given by Modern Drummer Magazine. I soon found out that not only is Vinnie Colaiuta's drumming impeccable(no surprise) on this album, but all other instrumentalists give remarkable performances. The arrangements and solos are top notch in complexity, and every track is simply energetic and fun to listen to - even for those who normally don't listen to or understand jazz music. Wigged Out is a great compliment to any music collection.

This so great to listen to over and over and over again!!
A musician friend told me to get this and that I would like it. He was right, it is a great cd and the musicianship is at the top.

Ian Flores

Superb!
Randy Waldman has one of the greates resume that any musician would envy. From performing with George Benson and Stevie Wonder, to arrange music for Barbara Streisand, Ray Charles, Sting and Celine Dion. He is also a known producer. Nevertheless, his incredible virtuosity has been unheard, probably because he never recorded an album by his own. "Wigged OUT" was Randy Waldman's response to the needed production of his own album. Nobody would have expected to hear Vinnie Colaiuta, John Patitucci, Arturo Sandoval, Michael Brecker, Freddie Hubbard and other great musicians all gathered for his debut album. The album blends classical masterworks with bebop and jazz. A Must have for any classical and Jazz lover!!!

What a wonderful example of innovation and creativity. Taking well-known classical themes such as excerpts from the Nutcracker, Peter and the Wolf, famous masterpieces by Beethoven, Rachmaninov and Mozart and the well-loved "Flight of the Bumble Bee" and arranging them for zesty jazz combo, this album is not only artistically delightful but full of entertaining musical ingenuity. There's sure to be at least one track that will stir a chuckle and a sense of awe in you, with the both well-disguised and not-so-disguised themes. This is accessible Jazz threaded with a little bit of familiarity and playful reinterpretation. I thoroughly enjoyed this album.

Thank you, I loved this CD and bought another and sent it too my brother Joe. Fantastic!

Llew Matthews

My dear God! Randy...This is stupendous! Give me more!
This is music that needs to be heard that represents some of the finest pianism and compositional joy I've heard in quite some time. It clearly shows the passion for all musical styles and the possibilities of symbiosis that is quite natural. Wonderful, startling performances that should get a lot more praise!!!!

Tony C

Serious jazz.
Straight-ahead jazz with a classical influence. The arrangements are complex but accessible. Musicianship is top of the line. Good production. Give it a listen.
